I would suggest to GersonK that I he read my newly added review of A Visit To Santa. I ask him whether or not he is going to revise his damning association of this film to Houghton College?I have read his very lengthy comments on that film . I agree that it is a trashy film, but what has that to do with a fine institution like the college?

jack2: "a fine institution like the college"

I am confused about your meaning. What does "fine" mean in the context you have put it? A "fine" judge of film quality? A "fine" institution of academic instruction? A fine what?

It's not really my association to revise. Houghton College has associated themselves with Clem Williams by using his guide. Not much I can do about that.

If I were trying to make an in-depth analyses of either Mr. Williams' ouvre (on-topic here) or Houghton College's film policy (off-topic here), I would want more evident than A Visit to Santa.

But all I'm analyzing (over analyzing, actually) is whether or not my only point of reference* on Mr. Williams "talent" makes him being treated as a film authority funny. And it still is.


*And after various google searches, I found only two hints that he made other films, and nobody who saw the need to comment on the quality thereof.

It IS pretty damning...for Clem Williams.

The association IS there, let's face it:

A Visit to Santa ~12 reviews all state somehow that it sucks - By Clem Williams Films.
Houghton Univ. - Has listed a reference to a publication by Clem Williams Films.

There's a direct association.
